Neighbor across the street last summer intentionally ran over/hit his wife in the driveway  with this truck during an argument (no serious injury, but still....). Our next door neighbors apparently witnessed the whole thing. 

They are still together and living across the street. Things must have worked out somehow.

WTH, she didn't have insurance!?  Did your insurance sue her?

Yes. But she was rather "poor". No real assets or anything to go after. They may have tried to garnish some wages, but I can't totally recall. It has been nearly 10 years now.

Do you still ride?

Nope lol. That did it for me. Although, I'd be lying if I said I don't get tempted...especially this time of the year.


(Also, the lady who f**cking hit me had no insurance. So I really got the short end of the stick)

Motorcycle accident. Thankfully, I survived it. Had a lady pull out in front of me as I had just exited a parking lot but was still going about 35-40 MPH.


She turned in front of me and it was game over. I went flying across the intersection. Helmet saved my life but ended up with:


- 2 completely fractured/shattered wrists (cool scars though)

- scars and scrapes up my inner thighs to my junk. The bike had collapsed and I must have braced from impact/after impact and my legs got it

- 1 week stay in the hospital, bed ridden for 4-5 days

- catheter stuck in me....I hated that part lol

Quite honestly, I am very lucky it was only that. Could've been a lot worse.

We get as many high quality cuts as possible in steak, 3/4-1".

Take all the roast you can.

Don't get cube, tip, round, stew...have that all made into ground beef, have them mix the tongue and liver in the ground beef if you can't eat that on it's own.  We don't get patties, all one lb ground beef packages.

Nice, I'll see if I can get my hands on the cut list for the 1/2 beef we bought last year.

birddog23 created thread "Bought 1/2 Steer…Now what?" at 09:35 am

We’re first timers here. We purchased a 1/2 steer from a family friend who farms and does all this stuff. 

Well it’s now time for it to be processed and cut. 

This is where we are totally lost. 

They sent us the cut card (below) but not sure exactly how I know what quantity and such to ask for/request. 

Any insight or help would be appreciated. We will be grilling mainly if that matters.

I don’t recommend any kind of medicine to reduce your weight or to keep your body in shape. Instead of using any kind of medicine, you should make a schedule for yourself. You should talk to a nutritionist in this regard. For more tips visit this site ptcl speed testFollow the diet plan and keep doing exercise. Daily walk and some work out will be really helpful. Medicines have side effects and everything will become really complicated for you if you start taking medicines. 

thanx man

Unrelated.... we bought a used GMC Acadia over the weekend from a dealership.


Car market is about as hot as the house market is right now. Crazy stuff.

I'd be interested in your opinions on static stretching.  


I've been doing it at the end of workouts (about half the time) for most of my life.  I do it because I learned to do it while playing football and wrestling in high school.  Recently, I've decided that it has done nothing to benefit me at all.  I'm not particularly flexible and stretching has never made a bit of difference with that.  I doubt it's prevented any injuries either.  A couple of months ago while doing it, I thought "Why the hell am I doing this all the time.  It is stupid."  So I quit doing it altogether.  Now, a few months later, I feel absolutely no different.  I'm beginning to think static stretching (not to be confused with dynamic warm ups) is a complete and total waste of time.  I'm sure my JV football coach (God rest his soul) would have me run wind sprints for saying this.


So what are your opinion?

Rarely do it unless my back starts to feel tight or a little sore. Then I'll just do some standing hamstring stretches (bend over and touch toes - may get crazy sometimes and cross legs to help out IT Band). 

If my hips are feeling tight sometimes I will sit on a chair and cross one leg over and rest ankle on my knee and try to get chest to leg. That is a good one.

Otherwise, no static stretching. Mainly a quick dynamic warmup, some lacrosse ball work, and foam roll. I am 30. I hate stretching/warming up too lol.

Baylor was tremendous. 


Local kid Zach Loveday got the courtesy minute for Baylor at the end snd got himself a block. Know it all dads around the area laughed at him for going to Baylor knowing he wasn’t good enough for a lot of playing time....he has the last laugh for sure.

Dude is 7'0".....I think he will be fine - wherever he is at. Looking at his bio quickly, he seems legit too.

Started my RPT (reverse pyramid training) yesterday.

Liked my 2 1/2 weeks of Shaun T's Insanity but I miss lifting too much and I'd much rather lift weights for 45 minutes than do cardio for 45 minutes. My plan will be to try to get 1-2 "lighter" cardio sessions in a week - but in all honesty, a walk with the dog may be my cardio.

I will be deadlifting, bench pressing, and back squatting. Then will sprinkle in some chins, dips, rows, and overhead pressing.

It had been a while since I lifted heavy. Last night's 275x4 opening deadlift set felt HEAVY lol. I hope to adjust rather quickly within my first 3-4 weeks.

By summer's end I should be deadlifting up over 330 again and hoping my squat is right around there too for 3-4 reps. I am terrible at bench pressing, and have always struggled with that but hoping I can put up some decent weight over these next 4 months or so.


Edit: Will also be going back to my 16/8 intermittent fasting.

So I need: Oregon State, USC, Baylor, Bama and Creighton to keep winning. Seems easy enough. 

EDIT: Oh, and and LSU win would help.

And I need all those teams to lose lol.

I’m pretty sure I have no shot, but hey, I can root against teams now  


birddog23 replied to "NCAA Tournament thread" at 02:24 pm

The potiential Gonzaga/Oregon game sounds fun.

Thankful for some Wisconsin and Villanova wins. Trice and Moore gave me some hope. Hoping for a Jalen Suggs and Franz Wagner show today!

Also, my two guys last night had to have been the worst performance ever for a First Four night.

Two guys combined for 4 points. Averaged nearly 31 combined....

I wasn't expecting Hemphill to go off coming back from injury but was hoping he could get 8-10. And then Etienne from Wichita St, averages 17 a game - scores 1 freaking point. 1 point.
